Some interesting pictures taken just after Croatia scored in extra time.
By that photographer that was bowled over by the Croatians.

I was planning on just watching the match at my apartment. Then courtesy of my local USL team, I won all-inclusive food and drinks for 4 people during the final at a local bar. I'm glad I'm central time, so it's not too early of a game.

Hop on a plane to the mainland and you can take my kid. I'll buy your ticket*.

*game ticket, not air ticket

I'd also be more for going if it was a Thur-Sat night, but its on a Tuesday. I'm getting too old to be out that late on a Tuesday.

Yea there's nothing quite like going to see your favorite team in person for the first time. I still clearly remember my very first baseball game at Shea stadium when I was 9. John Olerud hit a grand slam in the bottom of the 8th to tie it, and Mike Piazza hit a solo shot to take the lead on the next pitch.

Fox wants me to buy into the "best WC ever" narrative so bad and yet France's 2 goals have come off a blatant dive and a very questionable handball.

If France win this game I hope they score another goal that is the game winner because those would both make me very disappointed as world cup winning goals.
